Whenever you open a bag of Jack Link’s, you get a taste of what makes the family business a huge success: hard-work, fun, and quality meat. This pretty much makes me a big supporter of the source of said fun and meat. I am particularly in support of delicious and healthy snacks that get me feeling good. Don’t you want to be healthy and feel good? Don’t you want to have portable meat products that don’t make a mess but pack an awesome protein punch? Don’t you love protein? C’mon, I know the answer to all of these burning questions is a big ol’ jerkified YES!
I like beef just as much as the other girl does, and maybe even more. But if I’m being honest (you want me to be honest, don’t you?), I have to say that if there’s a chance for me to chow down on some bird, then I’m game. Bacon, yes, that’s the stuff, but chicken and turkey…oh how I love you so. I also love jerky. I really do. There’s just something about the salty, smokey goodness of it all. It’s very satsifying. A nutritionist might say it’s because of the massive amounts of lean protein and low carbs. A psychiatrist might say it’s because I secretly can’t get enough of cured meats, as my ancestors did. Whatever the reason, I’m all about Jack Link’s recently introduced line of Chicken and Turkey Jerky snacks.
First, let’s talk turkey. No, literally, I’m going to talk to you about jerky made from turkey. Not beef. Turkey is not just for Thanksgiving or cheese sandwiches anymore. Turkey is a pretty awesome substitute for beef in just about any situation, even skydiving (ok, probably not). This jerky is made with solid strips of lean, white meat, turkey breast seasoned and smoked over mesquite. This little beauty is 98% fat free, 13G of protein and only 4G of carbs per serving…with no added MSG. Seriously…how can you beat that?
Next, how about them chickens? Perfectly-seasoned, white-meat chicken goodness. A lean, mean, protein-packed machine with a hint of sweetness that’s 96% fat free with 11G of protein and only 6G of carbs per serving. Finally, we can all enjoy lean, white meat, protein-packed chicken as a snack without the impracticality or awkwardness of whipping out a rotisserie chicken or roasted turkey during our commute or soccer game. Honey…this chicken goodness is portable, baby!
All of this portable poultry goodness without the guilt! Sorry Bill. Sorry kids. I’m pretty sure this is what I’ve been waiting for all my life. Can you blame me? With all of this guiltless good taste, I can’t help but admit that munching on this Jack Link’s jerky makes my heart sing. It makes my eyes sparkle. It makes me look on the bright side of life. Sure, traffic can be a pain and people can be terrible…but so what? Let me at some chicken jerky…hey, this song is great! Share with me some turkey jerky…boy, I do love the clouds today! I can’t wait to blog and vlog when I get home!!
Maybe it’s the awesome taste. Maybe it’s the easy way you can tote it around and chomp it down. Maybe it’s the massive amount of protein and the teeny weeny amount of carbs and fat? I don’t know. Oh, who am I kidding? It’s all of those things, silly. You, I, our brains, and our bellies know it! How can it not get us to our happy place?
So, turn that frown upside down, people, and get Jack Link’s Chicken and Turkey Jerky a try. You betcha you’ll thank me for it. Apologize to the family for me.
